It has been asked for multiple times: the central Newsserver at the N-IX. It has been taken in production in June 2004 after a phase of testing and after only one month we are proud that it already takes Place 669 in the worldwide ranking of Usenetservers.
From now every Member of the N-IX can get a direct Newsfeed at the N-IX. The operation of an own server with expensive maintainance can be saved! You can also use an NNTP-Proxy on your network to adress the N-IX Newsserver.
The name of the server is news.n-ix.net
